The Honda SUV e:prototype Debuts At Auto Shanghai 2021

The Honda SUV e:prototype will officially usher in the car company’s future collection of EVs


  • Honda will introduce 10 EVs in China over the next five years.

  • The SUV e:prototype will go on sale in China in 2022.

  • Honda plans to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.


Up until recently, Honda was fairly quiet about its fully electric aspirations. Now, following the debut of the Honda SUV e:prototype, the Japanese automaker is preparing to launch no fewer than 10 new EVs on the Chinese market. While we don’t know if this one, or any other, will come to North America, we do know that the e:prototype will hit the Chinese market in 2022.

There are only a few pictures of the Honda SUV e:prototype officially available, none of which depict the cabin. This prototype however is every bit of a Honda. From most angle, SUV e:prototype reminds us of the recently introduced HR-V, right down to the character line that bisects the vehicle from one end to another.

All-New, All-Hybrid Honda HR-V Revealed

The Honda SUV e:prototype is loaded with LED lights up front and along the sides. With the exception of the busy wheels, this electric SUV is fairly plain yet elegant. As far as power or range is concerned, the only offered detail is as follows, from Honda’s press release: “[…] pursued dynamic, yet smooth acceleration performance and realized performance that enables the driver to feel the “joy of driving” in abundance.”
